Eric Nixon speaks to BBC,Sky Sports & Talksport paying tribute to Bert Trautmann
Our client Eric Nixon, Manchester City and Tranmere Rovers goalkeeper spoke to media recently on the passing of his friend and fellow Manchester City goalkeeper Bert Trautmann following his sad passing on 19th July 2013.
Eric Nixon spoke to radio stations including; Talksport, Sky Sports News Radio, BBC Radio Merseyside and BBC Radio Manchester about his friend and idol, paying tribute to one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time.
Quote from Eric Nixon is as follows;
I am saddened to hear the loss of argueably the greatest goalkeeper Manchester City have ever had. I was fortunate to meet Bert on a few occassions and found him to be a lovely down to earth very humble guy. As a goalkeeper he was second to none and a thorough professional, an example to everyone who has donned the gloves for Manchester City. My thoughts are with his family at this time. I doubt we will ever see a goalkeeper break his neck or have a major injury and have the guts and courage to carry on playing the rest of any game, let alone an FA cup final. Eric Nixon
